Ecodesign for commercial refrigeration. Preparatory study update


The study confirms that commercial refrigeration display appliances have still large potentials for improvement of energy efficiency and reduction of other environmental impacts through better design.
This study revises all detailed background techno-economic information necessary for the formulation of an EU legislative Ecodesign proposal, including definitions of commercial refrigeration appliances, appliance types included and excluded, scope and boundaries with existing EU legislation. It additionally describes the market situation, the supply chain, current refrigeration and display technologies and designs, energy use, and the use and end-of-life phases. The study revises also existing standards and underlines standard needs for the implementation of the Ecodesign measures on yet uncovered appliance types.The study includes first proposals of energy labels, based on a mapping of the current average energy consumption values of the appliances in the EU. Distinct proposals are made for refrigerated display cabinets of the supermarket segment, beverage coolers, small-ice-cream freezers, artisan gelato cabinets and refrigerated vending machines. The study includes also possible information provision requirements that help improve the end-of-life management of these appliances.
